One of the most important things kids learn is how to read. When families read together, it strengthens a child’s reading skills. However, some families don’t have any books at home. To encourage families to read together and provide them the support they need, Book in a Bag gives them books to start their own at home library, as well as reading tips and reading activities for the kids.
You can be a part of offering this opportunity to local families and children this spring break on Tuesday, March 13th. Join other volunteers to make Book in a Bags at the United Way Impact Center (view map) from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Valley of the Sun United Way has a goal to gather 3,000 Book in a Bags to hand out to kids and families at the Avondale KidsFest on Saturday, April 7th.
